The unique architecture of the Glyptotek with the Winter Garden as a lush focal point invites you to relaxation and contemplation.
“…I hope that in the winter the greenery can draw people in, and when they see the palms maybe they will also give some thought to the statues.” said the Glyptotek’s founder Carl Jacobsen in his opening speech in 1906, where he described the garden as a pleasurable point of entry to the works of art.
Nowadays, there is even more need for calm and contemplation. That’s why you can now join us for yoga in the Central Hall, where you can take a well-deserved break surrounded by antique statues.
And who knows, when you’re done with yoga, you might have renewed energy to take a look at some of the sculptures?
The ticket gives access to the Glyptotek all day, where you can explore the collections and special exhibitions.
Yoga at the Glyptotek is for anyone who wants to connect their body with their breath and shed positive light on body and mind. The session is open to both beginners and people who already have experience with yoga.
ABOUT THE TEACHER
Teacher Joséphine Renard has been practicing yoga for 20 years and has been teaching since 2014. Her philosophy is that yoga is for everyone – also you who cannot reach your toes, who have injuries or who might carry a few extra kilos. She bases her exercises on sensing the body trough movement and breathing. You can read more about Joséphine on renard.nu/yoga
Arrive well in advance so you have time to lock your belongings in the cloakroom. There are yoga mats to borrow at the museum and a bottle of water for you in the Central Hall, so all you have to do is show up in comfortable clothes you can move in.
Please note that it is not permitted to bring your own yoga mat and water bottle, and that there are no changing facilities at the museum.
